Bidvest Wits coach Gavin Hunt said again that too many foreign coaches with a fake CV coming in the PSL. Hunt is one of the couple trainers who support homegrown Orlando Pirates coach Mokwena. He got a chance to be a trainer in one of the biggest South African clubs.
After the last match, Hunt shared his thoughts about the local coaching scene. Maybe this is the reason why some of the clubs have bad SA Soccer results. Or not? We can’t be sure, but let’s take a look at what he said about this.
Homegrown coaches need to get a chance
When Hunt started with this job, every foreigner who came into the country with an English accent got a job. Then we had trainers from all around the world. But coaches from that time were plumbers, electricians, and fishermen. Everything, but not the trainers In this period I ask myself for so many times are they crazy? We need to believe in our own. Mokwena got a chance to become a trainer in the first division. He is fighting every day for a place here.
They have so many great coaches, but they can’t get a chance. Hunt gives support to Mokwena. Pirates need to be patient with him. Give him more support. Only like that, he will become a great coach. He deserves the chance. For Hunt they have enough capable trainers in South Africa, they don’t need funny guys with a face CV.
So many young guys are waiting for their opportunity. They need to get a chance. Everyone wants to see the wins, but sometimes you need to wait if you want to have a great product. If we look in the South African league, in history they have some problems with head coaches. Steve Komphela has a serious issue with former Polokwane City coach, Luc Eymael. Steve said that he was very disrespectful towards the country.
Eymael has one impressive CV. He maintained his innocence, but he said that it is not Komphela’s job to advise PSL club bosses. Maybe everyone should look for the best in their country, but everyone wants to win. This is the main reason why they have a lot of coaches from all around the world. In the future, we will see many changes in coaching positions. Be sure that Soccer10 will bring you all this information.
